Gravity does not exist and if time is like a sheet of fabric draped over a wooden frame, you are the weight that draws me to you. If everything in existence were like marble balls sitting on the fabric, how big would i be? how big would you be? how much does it take until the fabric falls through the wooden frame? the frame being the thing that holds everything together like goo or glue…
The universe moves around me. sometimes it feels like I’m going nowhere, sometimes drifting or floating but mostly i’m standing still. I’m not sure which has has control over where i go but if i believed i were a vampire i would surely end up biting people and developing a thirst for blood. Maybe all it takes is convincing yourself of your reality? without going insane, whatever that means… Can one person’s genius transcend them through this reality onto another plane with a different coloured piece of fabric and a different shaped wooden frame? does this make them insane?
